Forum: GratefulDead Subject: This is why I come here

I just want to say hat's off to the people who initiated and contributed to the recent PITB 76-95 and Spring or Fall 72 threads.

My workdays are spent with very smart people, but I rarely encounter so much detailed knowledge shared with such openness, clarity, and good humor, and so little ego. I love how much I learn from you all.

It *is* a little weird that so many of us know so much about such arcane topics, of course. I suppose the only thing that differentiates our passion and expertise from those of sports fans or literature professors or card players or microbiologists is that there are fewer of us.

Anyway -- thanks, friends. This place at its best is one of the highlights of my life.

Let me get in line with the thank yous. I never have the patience to analyze the music the way some folks do around here, but I love to read the stuff that comes out. And sometimes it even knocks me off my musical beaten path.

Well said! Been freakishly busy - 16 hours days for the past couple of weeks - but found time to read the PITB missives and enjoyed them mightily! A renewal of the Golden Age of the GD Forum?

Amen brother Mike.

There are several here who should be granted PhD's in Grateful Dead arcana.

Many thanks to you all for your interesting and enlightening contributions.
